The haircare ingredients to look for if you want long, lush locks

Say goodbye to clip-ins and blow-outs because year-round, salon-worthy hair is possible with the right ingredients. Caffeine, biotin, rose water and bamboo are just a few of the ingredients in the new Pantene Pro-V Miracles ranges that are specifically designed to give you healthy hair.


How many of us have skipped out of the salon, our hair bouncy and shiny and somehow thicker than before, only to find that after one wash we’re back to the flat, thin strands we know so well?

You’re not alone, almost a third of women feel their hair lacks volume while 27 per cent struggle with breakage, split ends and hair loss. But that salon-finished hair is possible outside of your bi-monthly visit, and it doesn’t require massive time or monetary investment either.

The key to thick, glossy strands are a few core ingredients and a little-and-often approach. From shampoo and conditioner to styling products and heat, good haircare isn’t about making it look good once, but about building volume and strength over time.

For damaged hair

So what should you be looking for? Well, if hair breakage or loss is a concern, ingredients like caffeine, bamboo and biotin will help promote strong healthy hair growth in the long-term.

Part of the vitamin B complex, Biotin provides proteins and enzymes needed to boost the production of keratin (the main building block of hair fibers and fingernails), resulting in good growth of hair, skin and nails.

Bamboo helps strengthen fine and brittle hair strands by nourishing hair and allowing it to bend, flex, stretch and return to its original shape.

A natural stimulant with antioxidant properties, caffeine is known for energising, rejuvenating, soothing, smoothening and adding shine to dull and frizzy hair.

Look out for haircare products that include some of these ingredients. Pantene’s innovative new range, Pro-V Miracles Grow Strong includes biotin and bamboo in five clever products to reduce hair loss from breakage. As well as a shampoo, a conditioner and a strong & long hair mask, it also has a Go Longer protein reconstruct leave-in cream, which moisturises and strengthens existing strands, while the Roots Awakener helps create the optimal environment for hair growth, ensuring your hair grows long and luscious from the very first use.

For thin or fine hair

If you have thin or fine hair, it can be so difficult to find products that give long-lasting volume. To nourish and transform your limp and lifeless strands, you should be focusing on what ingredients are in your usual haircare products.

Pantene Pro-V Miracles Lift’N’Volume haircare range is not only infused with biotin and rose water but it is also silicone-free. It’s designed to amp up the volume by maximising on moisture through their shampoo, conditioner, mask, weightless hair oil mist and hair multiplier leave-in thickening hair treatment that gives the appearance of 6,500 more hairs.

pantene pro-v miracles

So you can finally get those thick and luscious locks you have been dreaming about. By using natural fortifiers like biotin and rosewater, your hair will not only look good but, over time, it will become healthier and stronger too.

And if you’ve got curly or coloured hair, the range also includes Pantene’s first sulphate-free shampoo to gently cleanse hair without stripping out too many natural oils, which help give curls definition and shape.

Masks

No, we don’t mean the face-covering masks (although they are also very important!). We mean hair masks. Just like you might slather a night cream on your face and drink a glass of water before bed, your hair needs regular intensive care to stay in tip-top condition. As important as it is to encourage strong and healthy new growth, you also need to look after the hair you have.

Pantene include masks in both of their Pro-V Miracles ranges. The Grow Strong & Long Keratin Reconstruct Mask helps reduce loss due to breakage while the silicone-free Lift’N’Volume Body & Strength Hair Mask boosts moisture to give thicker, bouncy hair.

 

Shop both of the Pantene Pro-V Miracles Grow Strong and Lift’N’Volume ranges now in Dunnes Stores, Boots and Superdrug.
